Go to the Teacher Resources section and look under Reading for my two new Power Point presentations on poetry terms: one on terms that have to do with forms of poetry and one on terms that have to do with sounds and meanings in poetry. Students said they learned lots of new things--including an increased respect for poets and the writing of poetry!

From Education Week--According to the latest research, the two best predictors of college success are not grades and intellectual ability. Number one is “conscientiousness” (dependability, perseverance, work ethic). Number two is “agreeableness” (interpersonal skills, getting along with other people, working well in groups).
From what I’ve observed, I would say the same is true for life after college—jobs and careers, marriage and family life. Success comes more easily for people who are willing to work hard and who are able to cooperate with other people.
